    ^The Plymouth purple may be a close match, and I'm pretty sure one of the BMW Zs comes in a similar shade.

    If anyone's looking for a nice chocolate brown, buy the '74 Lancer in Aso Red

    I do miss the feature in GT 5 that you could short your chips based on manufactures Offical colors.

    This is wrong lol

    I bought the BMW 120 to get Nautikblau because I think it's the best to get that ubiquitous BMW dark blue (the others are too metallic). I'm not sure if it's the same everywhere but in the UK probably more than 50% of '90s/'00s BMWs are dark blue!

    The matte purple from GT5 would be close, if a little too lilac, but it's matte and probably very difficult to get hold of in GT6.

    There's a Mini colour that might be close: Black Eye Purple (probably a touch too dark and too dependent on light direction).
    Plus one vote for the Plymouth colour, too. In fact, muscles cars in general are probably a gold mine of interesting colours.

    The amount of muscle cars I bought in GT5 was ridiculous, I'm glad you keep paint chips now.

    Most of the muscle cars come in loads of colours, Corvettes etc for classy metallics and Chargers, Plymouths have loads of crazy gloss choices

    That's a pretty good match, does anyone know any good metallic golds for the wheels on these Subaru Imprezas?

    Also, are there any colours that match the "GT PASTELTONE"s in the following thread? I regret not purchasing the anniversary edition:banghead:

    For golds, try Volvo 240 "Beige", Ferrari 512BB "Gold Poly", Corvette Stingray Convertible '69 "Riverside Gold", Nissan Fairlady Z 280Z '79 "Gold Metallic", and Mercedes C63 AMG "Sanidinbeige Metallic". I'm sure there's lots more out there, but of course I haven't tried everything.

    Lexus LFA has a lot of nice pastel colors. None are quite the same as the GT PASTELONE shades, but there's some good ones. "Celeste" from the Alfa Romeo Spider 1600 Duetto '66 is my favourite pastel blue.

    :tup: Thanks a lot! I will definitely check some of those out, oh and I found a green pastel-looking colour a while back which is called "Verde Gemma Metallizzato" which I acquired from the Alfa Romeo 147 2.0 Twin Spark '02

    Anybody know which car gives a paint chip like that? I know the RUF's have a color like that, but they give no paint chips if you buy them...

    I found that French Blue from the '74 Triumph Spitfire 1500 (United Kingdom) works well, car only costs 17,200 Cr. as well. I'll post a picture of what it looks like on my Silvia

    EDIT: Here it is, the colours match a lot better on my TV than it does in this picture.

    You're welcome, it can be frustrating tracking down a specific colour so I know the feeling.

    This is my absolute favourite colour in GT5 & GT6. The Ford Mustangs Mach 1 '71, Boss 302 '13 & Shelby GT500 '13 all have a similar "Grabber Blue", but they don't give you a chip.

    As Z41N_787B suggested:

    Triumph Spitfire 1500 '74 - Cr. 17,200 - "French Blue" (click for more samples) is a good match:
    [​IMG]

    Jaguar XKR-S - Cr. 175,000 - "French Racing Blue"

    Lancia Stratos '73 - Cr. 375,000 - "Azzurro" on the left:
    [​IMG]

    Lotus Elan S1 '62 - Cr.57,710 and Lotus Europa S2 '68 - Cr. 30,000 - "French Blue" (click for more samples):

    I find that this excel document is much more useful since it allows me to sort and filter different paint types, manufacturers etc.

    https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/attachments/gtpgt5colourdatabase_v1-8b-zip.76651/


    I think Spirited Green Metallic or Verde Ithaca would be good choices.

    Verde Ithaca - Lamborghini Murciélago LP640 '09 - 385,000 Cr.

    Spirited Green Metallic - Mazda Demio Sport '10 - 16,200 Cr.

    EDIT: The colours look very similar in these pics but they didn't appear like this in-game. Spirited Green Metallic has more of a yellowy tint to it and is slightly darker than Verde Ithaca but here they look identical.

    I agree that Verde Ithaca is a good match, it's what I used in GT5 as well. I hadn't thought of the much more economical Demio. Anyway, if anyone wants more shots of a Verde Ithaca Scirocco, here are mine.

    Those are some good pics, although I think it (and probably every car) looks better with the standard hood over the painted carbon hood since the carbon one adds what looks like two clips on either side while I prefer the standard look or the other carbon fibre hood (unpainted).

    You can't get any cheaper than free.

    Range Rover Evoque - Cr. 60,000 - "Havana (Premium Metallic)/roof white" (shown above. The McLaren is in its original "Fire Black", but doesn't give you a chip). The Evoque is a prize car for completing the International A Licence. It might be too dark, though.

    Also try

    Mini Cooper S '11 - Cr. 30,300 - "Hot Chocolate"

    Mini Cooper S Countryman - Cr. 34,500 - "Light Coffee"

    Audi S4 '98 - Cr. 71,220 - "Mocha Brown Pearl" on my Beetle:

    The one colour I'm desperate to find is to match the green metalic paint off of the Takata Dome NSX 2006 model. I need so I can repaint the HSV-010 base model. Thanks
